nullMILWAUKEE (AP) - Rickie Weeks hit a three-run homer and had five RBIs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers over the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-8 on Tuesday.

Weeks finished with three hits for the Brewers, who won their ninth straight against Pittsburgh. They improved to 46-7 at Miller Park vs. the Pirates since the start of 2007, the best home record by any team against a division opponent during that stretch.

Pittsburgh fought back from a 7-3 deficit to grab an 8-7 lead on Starling Marte's three-run homer in the sixth inning. The play initially was ruled a double, but umpires overturned the call after a video replay. Jean Segura led off the bottom half with his third home run of the season.
